From importer Peter Weygandt: "It was at the 2005 Grand Jours de Bourgogne that I was looking for excellent Burgundies at equally excellent value. Marsannay came to mind as a good candidate, but aside from a couple of well-known producers, I was disappointed in the quality of many. That is until I came upon Philippe Collotte. A tall, quiet man, looking a bit like Gary Cooper, but with a lot of passion to make superb wines just waiting to be unleashed. Producing lower yields, more selection before and at harvest, de-stemmed fruit, and for us he bottles everything unfiltered. His Bourgogne parcel was planted in 1947 and there are 4 parcels of 50 + year vines in his super-value Marsannay VV. The deep, rich wines produced by Philippe Collotte are some of the best kept secrets in our portfolio." This pure pinot noir is aged in French oak (30% new) then aged another year in bottle before release. Deep and sultry with black currant and blackberry aromas and flavors. Sustainably grown.
